Shortest month of the year means shortest book haul of the year, right? Seriously, though, this is probably the shortest book haul I’ve published on this blog. In February, I tried a new thing: instead of buying a ton of discount books, I just bought a few new releases I was interested in. You know, like someone who doesn’t hoard books like a dragon. Here are the books I acquired in February:
A Woman is No Man by Etaf Rum. This was by Book of the Month pick for last month, and I’m really excited about this one! Not only have I heard great things about it, I’m particularly looking forward to read a book with a Palestinian American main character, because I’m half Palestinian myself (my dad emigrated to the US in the 70s).
Black Leopard, Red Wolf by Marlon James. I was immediately sold when I heard the pitch “African Game of Thrones“. Obviously, I needed to pick this up immediately. I made it through about fifty pages before I decided to save this one for when I’m more in the mood. The story is intriguing, but the writing is kind of difficult to get through. It’s currently on hold, but I am planning on picking it back up eventually.
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas. I loved The Hate U Give, so, naturally, I needed to grab this one. I haven’t been in the mood for it yet, but as soon as I am, I’ll be picking it up.
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. I have yet to read a Samantha Shannon novel, but they hype got me. And I’m actually really looking forward to reading this one. I was planning on picking it up last weekend, but I somehow managed to injure my wrist, and holding up this massive book was actually painful. #BookwormProblems, right?
That’s it for February! I know, I have no idea who I am anymore. March’s haul might not be as massive as it usually is, but I think it’s safe to say I’ll be more than four books.
